At the end of March 1967, a group of scientists from the Museum of Natural History in East Berlin boarded a ship in Rostock and travelled towards Cuba. 70 kilometres east of Havana, on a coast strip called Arroyo Bermejo, they worked towards the realisation of an ambitious project: corals, fish and other organisms were to be collected, transferred to East Berlin and worked into a reconstruction of a Cuban coral reef that would be integrated to the permanent exhibition of the Natural History Museum. This imaginary sound walk traces from different perspectives this coral’s trip to Berlin, exploring 50 years of a never-ending journey.
